1. No matter what you say, Jerusalem
Eyal ,   USA Israel   (02.24.12)
was and will always stay with the Jews. We are going to Judaizing Jerusalem like you remember it 2000 years ago and all you Arabs can yell at the top of your lungs. Israel will expand and will be the most powerful country in the world, not just the Middle East. As soon as Jordan's Arab spring starts, all Palestinians will be bye bye to Jordan.
2. We need to get rid of all Arab MK's
Eyal ,   USA Israel   (02.24.12)
In America, these bastards will never be allowed to do what they do. Israel should take the same approach.
3. yes declare war on unloyal arabs, either loyal israeli arab
ralph   (02.24.12)
or disloyal enemy. now deal with these mks. they cross the line so often. no democracy would put up with such behaviour. next take back all pension benefits and social services, benefits from convicted israeli arabs and their families. there has to be a penalty for engaging in anti-israel and anti-state behaviour. all mk's who visit enemy arab countries and activities. revoke passports and citicenship of these mk's who left country to attend. enough is enough.
4. Alright, but
Jeremy ,   Chicago USA   (02.24.12)
OK, but don't let this traitorous dog back into the country. Escort the mother f-er from Ben Gurion Int'l to the Gaza border, and don't let his arab ass hit the door on his way in. Why is he allowed to attend traitorous events and maintain his legal standing as an MK????
5. Just as Israelis are slowly awakening to the religious black
tom ,   tel aviv   (02.24.12)
mailing the society at general, so must come a time when the same Israelis will realise that being bamboozled by the Arabs has nothing to do with "Democracy". I am afraid it may take just as long time!
6. Are we paying for this?
Mina ,   Haifa, Israel   (02.24.12)
Participating in this conference could amongst other things be interpreted as an act of anti-Semitism against Jews/Israelis, as it also seems to plan on acting against the rights of Jews/Israelis to buy property and live wherever they may wish, including in East Jerusalem. If those MKs would be attending such a conference at the expense of the Jews/Israelis tax payers, then why should Israel be led to finance this? However, if we must pay for it, then please make it a one way ticket, as there is no room for such MKs in Israel. Jerusalem was the capital of Ancient Israel at least 3,000 years before Islam was even invented and Arabs made their way to it through their bloody, violent conquers. Jerusalem has always been, and will continue to be the capital city of Israel. The Arabs/Muslims face Mecca when they pray, and there is no given evidence that Muhammad ever visited Jerusalem. No one should be allowed to dictate to any Jews/Israelis where they can or cannot live.
7. What?
solomon ,   bklyn   (02.24.12)
What? No discussion of parts of the city that were conquered by the arabs in 1948? Or in the late 600's AD, during the Moslem conquest? Or by King David (a Jew) from the Jebusites (no relation to Arabs or Moslems)? No discussion of the influx of arabs after 1948 at the behest of Jordan? No discussion of the status of holy places under international law, such as Rachel's Tomb, Joseph's Tomb, and the Cave of Machpelah (bought by Abraham, a Jew)? What, are they prejudiced? Are they ignoring historical fact? (Duh...yeah. As usual.)
8. Protect Jerusalem from Arab invaders. The Jews came BACK
PETER SM ,   AUSTRALIA   (02.24.12)
after the Arab armies ethnic cleansed them out & prevented access to their Holy sites. Protect Jerusalem from the 5th column
9. Arrest them for treason!
Reuven   (02.24.12)
10. Will they cover the etnnic cleansing from '48 - 67
Eric ,   Tel Aviv & NY   (02.24.12)
Under the Ottomans Jerusalem was a multicultural city with Jewish, Christian, and Muslim population. Under the Jordanian occupation, 1948-67, East Jerusalem was ethnically cleansed of all Jews. Land was confiscated and given to others who had no rights or claims to it.
11. No.9
Faraz ,   Meldreth, UK   (02.24.12)
Indeed, much as the Europeans ethnically cleansed parts of Australia of Aborigines. Let's hope they too get their country back, then.
12. Yerushalayim CAPITAL of ISRAEL. Carry on?Jewish Medina back!
Jerry ,   The Netherlands   (02.24.12)
